I personally really really like Mr. Fallin's caricatures and its unfair to compare him with Squiggs, whom I think is equally talented. But Mr. Fallin is surely more developed and experienced in his style. But I think we can all agree that either of them would be WAYYYYY better than ANY of the drawings? portraits? at Sardis for the past 3-4 years! Absolutely disastrous!
You guys should check out @DramaticInking who does caricatures and drawings for West End/London-based shows!
It's been awhile since I posted! Anyway, for the past 2 weeks I have been in NYC watching a bunch of Broadway shows. So here is my short review of the shows & also my drawings of it of 3 of the shows: Hedwig, Lady Day & Kinky Boots ~
I would appreciate for any comments or even liking my facebook or instagram @felixsdrawing if you guys like my cariacatures!
Hedwig & The Angry Inch This show was genuinely a bi
Broadway's largest set desgin Nov 17

One of the biggest sets I've seen is definitely Lord of the Rings in the West End! Spiderman was pretty huge!
Can anyone suggest a musical set in China? Aug 29

nomdeplume, I'm from Hong Kong AND live in the New Territories! I am highly insulted by your comments on my hometown. You can call China communist (cuz they are) but Hong Kong is not at all like this. Yes there are a lot more mainland and taiwanese tourists in Hong Kong now who are rude but Hong Kong is still an exceptionally good place to visit for tourists. This is what happens to international cities when they are so many different people in the city, London, New York especially are no less d
Sondheim vs. Porgy & Bess - YIKES! Aug 10
2011, 03:06:00 PM
adaptations will always happen as long as plays are written and performed... heck, there was a period when King Lear has a happy ending! CRAZY STUFF! I understand Sondheim's anger and I agree with his points and concern, but there really is no need to be so angry towards his colleagues in the business... oh well... either way... that certainly steamed up some publicity for the production!
GHOST coming to Broadway in the spring? Aug 5
2011, 05:13:12 AM
Have to say, Caissie was amazing, thought I would be interested to see Laura Michelle Kelly sing the role too! There is something very special in Richard Fleeshman's voice that is quite unique, it's not very traditionally 'musical theatre', more pop rock and I think it suits the score a lot. I think they both should have a chance to play it on Broadway!!!
True Triple Threats Aug 1
2011, 01:03:39 AM
The obvious/classics: - Chita Rivera - Ben Vereen - Liza Minnelli
For the West End: Triple Threats (pretty much the Roxies & Mary Poppins haha): - Ruthie Henshall (dancing the original Roxie choreography AND THEN doing one of the most iconic Fantine performances, COME ON!) - Sally Ann Triplett - Caroline O'Connor - Josefina Gabrielle - Rebecca Thornhill - Laura Michelle Kelly - Scarlett Strallen - Elena Roger - John Barrowman - Ste

I've seen 11 Christopher Oram designs and they've all been nothing but spectacular!! All his designs at the Donmar are great!! Guys & Dolls, Evita, Red, Passion, Streetcar Named Desire to name but a few!!!!
Sleep No More is AMAZING May 5
2011, 06:28:27 AM
I might be wrong but this might actually be their first production that they've 'transferred'. They did Sleep No More quite a few years ago, a few years before Faust and I believe that was a MUCH smaller scale and different concept. I think they further developed Sleep No More is because of the appeal it will get from the content and text it's based upon. Since the company is so site-specific and 'exclusive' and secretive, I believe it was only because they wanted to bring the show to New York t
Tanz Der Vampire review May 4

Great review! I'm going to Vienna next month and am hoping to catch this. Can I ask how much you paid for a ticket and where you sat? I want to go but the tickets are so expensive... I really wish they have discounts or student tickets!
If there were a Passion revival, who would be cast? May 4
2011, 09:48:37 PM
I don't think it's a matter of what cast you get, it's more about what production you guys have. I saw the recent Donmar production and I really think you guys should have had that transferred over!!!!! with those leads too!!!
Angela Lansbury as Gertrude Apr 12
2011, 02:13:51 PM
I was just reading Peter Hall's Shakespeare's Advice to the Players and saw a picture of Angela Lansbury as Gertrude in the 1975 Royal National Theatre production of Hamlet with Albert Finney in the title role. I know it's QUITE far back... but anyone seen this? anyone seen Angela in the role?
Bad or odd set designs Apr 12

Peggy Sue Got Married's set was pretty awful. And yes... I really didn't like the RENT set at all...
LA CAGE - The Best Cast Yet? Mar 31
2011, 04:45:33 PM
I never saw Douglas as Zaza on Broadway but I did see him in London 3 times and also John Barrowman. Harvey was good in his protrayal but I didn't think he had the details that Douglas brought to the role. Harvey was more warm and cosy with his audiences, but for me, Douglas or even John's Zaza is not about wanting the audiences to like them, but to show the problems Albin faces behind Zaza. I liked Harvey, I truly did. I was surprised how well his voice was and you can see he had a lot of
Priscilla Queen of the Desert - WTF?! Mar 20
2011, 02:41:41 AM
Ive brought friends to see the London production... young, old, gay, straight, dating, non-dating, camp, boring, weird, Asian, white friends... all sorts and ALL of them LOVED the show. If your friend is jobless and still find the show not cheering enough, maybe he should find a job first and then visit the show! If this show doesn't cheer you up... maybe you should stay jobless!
What role did Elena Roger play in 'Nine' Mar 17
2011, 12:25:45 PM
the 2003 Broadway revival WAS an extension of the Donmar revival I believe. And in the Argentina production I THINK I read somewhere Elena played Claudia but I might be wrong... she does look like a Louisa though.
